The Aquatec Maxcon Group commenced operations in 1970 and has developed into the leading provider of water and wastewater technology in Australasia. The group provides a complete vertically integrated range of services combined with an extensive range of state-of-the-art products, processes and technologies.
From process selection and design, civil construction, mechanical and electrical equipment, installation, commissioning and maintenance, we are able to meet all the needs for water and wastewater treatment plant delivery. This allows us to be a “one-stop-shop” for Potable, Industrial and Municipal Clients, reducing the number of interfaces as well as offering practical and cost effective overall solutions.
From inception, Aquatec Maxcon sought to develop high quality market leading technologies better suited to the relatively severe Australian conditions. We have spent over 15 million dollars on research and development of designs that have been refined using input from our workshop, field installation crews, and operations staff to ensure the production of reliable and robust equipment. Together with leading technologies sourced internationally, this has now become the most comprehensive range of water and wastewater technology available in Australia.
Projects are undertaken in all states of Australia, New Zealand as well as Internationally, supported from offices in Brisbane (Ipswich), Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide. The group employs over 330 people and has successfully completed projects in New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, Singapore, India, Fiji, Vietnam and China.
More recently, the group has been successful in entering the energy market through its range of Capstone MicroTurbines and Photo Voltaics, which is all part of a wider initiative to capitalise on our engineering capabilities in a market which has synergies with the water business.
Aquatec Maxcon have for more than 40 years, designed, installed and commissioned almost every type of water and wastewater technology and have delivered these contracts under various types of project delivery methods. These have varied from purely supply, supply and install, design and construct, BOOT and alliance based projects. Although the capability to deliver complete municipal and industrial projects has increased over time, a large proportion of these projects are still supply and install with a number of these projects being delivered to overseas customers.
Our years of experience have given us a broad range of knowledge of the different processes and equipment used for differing purposes. This means our clients can rely on the correct selection and sizing of equipment for their application. In addition to our technical expertise, we have project management and installation teams with many years of experience in delivering projects in remote areas through to projects in major capital cities.
Aquatec Maxcon is widely recognised as a trusted Project Manager and Water Technology Partner. Our delivery of, and contribution to projects has been recognised with International, National and State Awards for Excellence in Project Management, Engineering Excellence and Community Relations.
